My husband has Graves' Disease, he received RAI last week. That triggered a thyroid storm, he was in the ICU for almost three days. Now that he's home, he doesn't seem to be any better. He's getting hot and then cold. He's full of energy and then almost comatose. He's starving and then sick. He's so weak that he won't even put his dishes in the sink. He's extremely angry and stand-offish toward me. We have 19 mo and 4 mo babies and he literally can't and won't help me with them. I've been working full time, taking care of them and then trying to find someone to watch them while I'm at work. Most days, someone will watch the 19 mo, but the 4 mo stays at home and lays in his bouncy chair all day. I'm so sad about this. I feel like he's being neglected and I don't know what to do. I feel like I'm at my wits end. Plus his doctor said that his Graves' is the worst case he's ever seen and he'll probably be the way he is right now for at least 6 months. What do I do? Do I move back home with my mom, try to find a babysitter and let him recover on his own? I don't know what to do, but I'm an emotional wreck.

My thyroid levels normalized after 12 weeks AOG (except for TSH) without medications and had a normal...
